Our History

CLAC was founded in 1985 with the idea of bringing together overseas and British students for an international summer course experience with a focus on natural language exchange and friendship. It is an idea that is still at the heart of CLAC and drives what we do today. From the start CLAC has operated like a family both in terms of management and the atmosphere of its summer schools.

Who We Are

CLAC is owned and run by mother and son team Anne and William George. The business has grown over the last 30 years, but the management is committed to remaining small enough to keep a family feel and providing personal attention to its students. Both Anne and William make it their priority to ensure that CLAC retains everything that has made it special for so many years.

If you ever have any concerns, the Directors are available to speak to you personally, giving you assurance that your needs will be met by those who make the decisions.

Why Choose CLAC

Most students come on personal recommendation from friends or family and a high percentage return for at least another year. As an experienced family company, CLAC can offer unrivalled levels of care, personal attention and flexibility.  When you book a CLAC course the same people you speak to will be working at the summer school.
